Just got done having a long argument with Katja about that book she gave me this weekend. She says the ending is ambiguous (thank you spellcheck), the last chapter is not a drug dream but reality and she had the baby and cleaned up her life. I said, no way, the glasses on the bathroom floor said that she overdosed on drugs. Chris says he likes Katja's opinion better but nothing in that book said happy ending. I kept asking who saved her? She was alone, she had just been beaten up by a bunch of high school kids and all her money was taken and she was left naked and bleeding in a bus station bathroom with only her heroin. Come on, that is a huge downer to go from to rainbows and teddy bears. Tatianna says I am right but it sounds so much better the way Katja looks at it. I just said it was all her mom's fault anyway. She was the one who said it was okay to experiment with boys and stuff because she was a teenager only once. Good one, mom. Lets give Captain Cluelittle a gun and hope no one gets hurt. For only like 100 pages it was a kick to the guts.

Another day, another argument about the book. Paula read it during her lunch and said the same thing as Katja and Chris and Jos. The ending is uplifting. The girl didn't die and the last scene in the book is just her being woke up by her daughter from a bad day dream. Chris says I cannot help it. My dad was a worse option kind of person and so is my family, while the girls and him are optimistic. I just cannot see their thinking. The last paragraph is brutal and I cannot believe that "I am so tired and I hate myself" means anything more less that suicide. The thing that makes me laugh is that they call this book a light novel. Nothing light about it. Sure, the first chapter was funny and upbeat but then it went downhill from there when her mom suggested that Saki, the main character, get out and start dating guys, even though she was clueless about sex and anything a 16 year old should know. I mean hell, she drags her daughter, who is shy and wears glasses, to a salon where she gets a hip haircut, contacts and instead of baggy school uniforms, her mom buys her the tightest, shortest uniforms she can find and expect nothing bad to happen. Geez, even the girl's stepdad take notice and I do not have to tell you where that went after a night of drinking. I know what Chris and the girls say makes sense but there is nothing in the last 7 chapters which says happy ending.

He is up early. The little ones spent the night, Paula is at a seminar in Boston and Thierry went with her because they needed a day without kids. The little ones were up at 7 playing with Tatianna and Chris was already making breakfast for everybody. Katja is around the city all day, so she is still here. She went outside to take Allie for a morning walk and said it is really icy out. Chris made that twisted bread French toast today and he found strawberries, probably super expensive but I love them anyway. Even the little ones, who sometimes are too excited to eat breakfast ate them up.

I just got them dressed and because their pre school is taking today off, we get to have them all day. I can predict visits to toy stores and maybe a book store for them. Bayley asked for a pony tail today and I want her hair so bad. It has such great curl and Paula has never cut it and like she says, she want to have braids like Katja. It is almost as long as Katja's so it could be something I might do. Paula does not want to cut either of their hair's. Luc's is getting pretty shaggy but Chris got it combed and he does not look all ragamuffin. I am totally surprised I am actually ready to go as soon as Tatianna is ready. We are giving her a ride to the city and she will come home with Katja tonight. She seems better. She said she talked to Andrew yesterday and they had a good conversation but they still have things to work out. Andrew wants to go back home to England and Tatianna is not ready for such a big move. She said his parents are putting pressure on him for grandkids and they want to see him more often.

Ok, it looks like we are going to get going in like 15 minutes. The dogs and cats have been fed, Katja is heading for the door because she has a meeting at 9:30 in Laval and she wants to pick up some bagels and coffee. Jos just texted her that the winds are like a knife today. Poor Jos has to be at the bank at 7 because some kind of manager meeting for all the banks in Quebec was happening. She was mad because she wanted French toast. Well, laters. I hope Chris has the heater on in his ride because I have been sitting nearly on top of the fire in the fireplace.

Waiting for Herself. She is having a bad morning. Evil hair, stepped on an earring which fell out because cats like to play with them and the bedroom is covered in clothes because nothing fits today. Not my fault someone thought she could eat two slices of cheesecake loaded with chocoate shavings would not have adverse effects. Right now, it is 67 F***'s in a row and still rising. Each failed outfit is followed by more profanity. She is also saying she thinks she should get a tetanus shot and one of the cats needs to be mircrowaved.

Yes, today I have to pick up a new laptop. Somehow mine ended up at the bottom of the pool. Don't know how and think we have a ghost who has evil intentions. Also need to pick up some new clubs. Funny thing, found four broken clubs in the backyard and seems the same ghost likes to mess with me. Okay, I am tempted to take a picture of Herself and post it. Looks like she brushed her hair with a cat. Probably shouldn't. I kind of want to see my next birthday.

I may have to go in there because it is not looking good on me getting out of here before noon. Her refusal to go up a size is comedic. Even if she is able to somehow get the zipper up, I see bigger issues because she will have to visit the loo at some shopping emporium and they frown on a guy bringing in pliers to the women's wc.

I am freaking beat. Stayed up late to watch the UDub game. I really hate PAC-12 games on Saturday night. They start at 10:30 and invariably go for more than three hours. Still, they beat a game Arizona team in Tucson. But, the lack of sleep is problematic. I got a 4pm game to get wired up for and I am already getting the feeling I am going to be unhappy come 7pm. Add in some lamebrain, I see him in the mirror every morning, scheduled a big dinner for tonight without consulting the NFL schedule. The promise of prime rib means I am watching maybe 10% of the game and running back and forth when I hear raised voices.

Trying to figure where I send the dirty letter on the game starting at 10am. Also unaware of this and there's my brother, his wife and his daughter's family at the door at 8am expecting breakfast. Of course, getting help from the residents of this place on a Sunday morning is iffy at best. Here I am whipping up biscuts and gravy, hoping one of the kids smell food and make an appearance. Wrong again. When the meal is ready to hit the table, I suddenly see our three borders and Herself all show up fresh faced and showered. I feel like an overworked short order cook right now. Well, enough complaining. Time to start in on the in game munchables. Have requests for nachos, seven layer dip and some smartass begging for bagel dogs. I ain't making bagel dogs from scratch. Sent Katja out to Provigo to pick a couple boxes of the frozen variety. A simple job, I figure it will take her two hours to complete the five minute drive, the ten minute wander through the store and the hour or so stop at whatever clothing emporium is open this early on Sunday.

Geez, Goff turned back into a POS right fast. Immobile quarterbacks like him become punching bags when you know they have to pass. Had a chance to take this game in the first half and because Goff reverted back to Jim Everett, immobile, slow and a one trick pony we blew a first and goal situation. Seeing as how Goff is loved by the LA press, this will be on the O-Line (not undeserved, but when it takes your quarterback ten seconds for a seven step drop, you are in trouble) or Gurley's quad. The simplest fix, IMO, is a quarterback who is mobile. Problem is, they had their chance at a few and instead threw away two drafts to get Goff because he looked good in a uniform and if given an hour, he could huck the ball seventy yards. Of course, some O-Linemen who don't hold or fall into the fetal position on every play would be nice.

Dodgers fuck themselves over, Rams are sputtering and the Kings are inconsistent. At least we have hope in the Lakers!

Just sitting here drinking coffee on my day off. Since my job is federally contracted, we get Columbus Day off. Too bad Columbus was a gigantic shitbag.

Ah, Columbus wasn't that bad. He was no worse than any of his contemporaries and even though I am born and bred Roman Catholic, the church is first and foremost for any of the abominations which happened during this era. In the fifteenth century, individual thought was non-existent and the church, which controlled all the learning and money, ran the show with an iron fist.

Regarding the Rams, there are two huge problems and one massive problem. Problem one, Goff is not a franchise quarterback even though he is paid like one and the offensive line is awful up the middle. But the biggest problem is McVay's ego. I honestly think he believes his own press clippings and he has been thoroughly outcoached over these last three games. Maybe, this last game will puncture his big head and he can get back to being less predictable.

I see your point regarding Rome. Having gone from erstwhile holy roller to atheist, religion quite frankly leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but that is all I shall say in regards to that. I try to respect others who have differing views and beliefs.

You are definitely right about the Rams. The mystique is gone for now.

I agree that Columbus was a shit. Don't get me wrong, but I am willing to give him some rope because of his marching orders. Now, Pizzarro and Cortez were truly vile human beings because they went past their orders and were devils, themselves.

A wonderful quiet morning. Herself wanted me to drive her into the city but I wasn't feeling it. She got pouty and flounced out of here. Called an Uber to take her to Sams' domicile. I figure they are walking around looking into windows before finding a bistro which fits their needs. Told her to bring her umbrella, just in case. She is keeping her promise to not spend money in Le Belle Provence Quebec. She is adamant on not giving any money to Justin the Nimrod. Mind you, after speaking to the Boy last night, she is down on Cali, too. I guess Gavin the Pretty is playing potentate and the Boy is talking Texas or the Carolinas as his next mailing address. Even a full-fledged liberal like me is frightened of California. Then again, I am worried about my new country of residence. The folks west of Toronto and east of Quebec are showing signs of turning this country into Trumpland North. Luckily, most of the people in this country live in Toronto and Montreal, but the minute Justin pisses them off, it could get ugly. Enough on the political landscape of the Great White North.

Too funny, I got a email to update my voter registration in the Virgin Islands. Whatevers, if they want me to vote, I will exercise my franchise. One vote for Tulsi Gabbard when it is time. Ah, lunch is ready. Feeling the urge for greasy spoon food - Tuna Melt on sourdough and bacon wrapped tater tots. Life is good. Now to finish the manga I am writing to send into one of those manga websites. My only problem is the artwork got approved by the girls but the dialog is unfunny. Gotta work on the double entendres and sarcasm. It is only like 23 pages and four of those are filler. It is a baseball story where twin girls are trying to hide that they are girls while playing for a high school baseball team and the hijinks that are involved in such a convoluted story. The girls names are Cody and Cory, hey those work as girls' names, too.

I am also loving my new avatar. Shouko Komi is the most adorable and loveable character I have ever seen and her sparkly look with cat ears is what makes my day. Now, Herself does not know what to make of her. She wonders if she has a mouth and because she rarely if ever speaks and if she does it is either on the phone or behind a book or pad of paper, so she is drawn without a mouth.

What a difference. Keto FTW!


Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
Well done. My brother and sister in law are doing the Keto and say they have not felt this good in years. Their weight loss is not huge, probably ten pounds each, but they say they are sleeping better and no longer have the urge to snack during the day. Plus, like my sister in law says, "I can eat bacon and cheese all day long!"

Rams went big today. Jalen Ramsey for more draft capital while dumping Marcus Peters and his gutless approach on the Ravens. Don't know a lot about the new players, Corbett and Young, but they are cheap and have a pulse, so I am saying the arrow is pointing up. Hopefully, they will chip the cement off of Goff's feet and he grows a heart.
